absence of light
“A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.” — Jean Genet
38w x 38h x 3.75d ground shungite stone, charcoal, plaster, sand, concrete, ground black onyx, oil housed in a handmade shou sugi ban frame (burnt to a dark char)
"absence of light" was infused with ground shungite tone throughout the concrete layers. "the miracle stone of the 21st century" shungite is now the go-to stone for electromagnetic field (EMF) protection, purification and detoxification of the body, as well as general healing and emotional well being. shungite has been around for an estimate two billion years and is composed mostly of pure carbon. shungite is also the only known natural mineral to contain fullerenes, which are specific molecular formations of carbon that act as powerful, long-lasting antioxidants.
The hanging gear installed to each piece differs by weight, size, and frame type. We install the best option for each work, and *test* them on our studio wall way before a purchase is made, to ensure the gear is sturdy and reliable for the weight.
If the painting you are purchasing is going to be hung on a surface that needs a particular type of gear, please reach out so we can make that happen for you.
Our shipping rates are pre-set and determined by size & weight. The pre-set prices have been thoughtfully chosen, using the safest and most cost effective shipping methods. We split and match the total shipping & handling cost for each purchase in order to offer a pre-fixed price that doesn't fluctuate.
We ship every painting ground, unless upgraded to 3 day air - UPS ground shipping typically takes 3-7 business days. The paintings in this collection are "ready to ship" meaning once we receive your order we will start our secure packing process. We can typically get the painting ready to ship within 1-3 business days!
Our paintings frames are uniquely crafted to complement and complete each individual piece, tying the entire vision together. Some works have pre-planned frames that we use as a focal point, and inspiration.
We have had occurrences of collectors loving a painting, but finding the frame not meshing with the rest of the vibe in their space. If you find yourself in that predicament, please reach out to inquire how we can accommodate re-framing the peice.
buying art is a big decision, especially online without experiencing it in person can make anyone a little nervous. we have been on a mission to find the best lighting /camera to properly photograph our highly textured work. viewing our works in person is a completely different experience, and we are motivated to making the online experience as special; before the art reaches your home.
OUR ART, YOUR SPACE
if you send us a few photos of your space (the spot you envision the painting: head on & from the side) we can create a rendering of what it would look like. we aim to make every experience collecting art with us personal: in person, or by phone from across the globe.
please reach out for additional videos, information, or questions about a peice. our goal is to bridge the gap between the online art purchasing experience and direct from the artist at a fair. nothing brings us more joy than connecting with people from all walks of life.
